Catalog of the Scorpions... Fet et al (covering 1758-1998)

If someone wants to know a lot of info on a lot of scorpions, this book is great. If you don't desire to have a list of every species known up to 1998, to include references, this book would be a waste of money. The book itself contains locations species (all the way down to ssp) are native to, improperly used names and so forth, as well as references for each species for scientific studies done on them. It has been said that this book is an excellent field guide, not to mention, it's ease of use (considering it's number of pages). I am still pondering on ordering some references on several species in this book. The only negative comments I have was it's difficulty to locate and cost, due to it's not having been a mass-printed book, but considering the amount of information and direct aim at scorpions on a more professional level, it's obvious why. Too bad pics and descriptions of each species were not able to be included as well. Maybe someday.
